“Y’all know I have never played about my children, family, and our privacy.”

Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert are officially ending their marriage after ten years of being together and seven years of marriage.

The 32-year-old singer has finally responded and confirmed that she filed for divorce from professional basketball player Iman Shumpert.

Teyana Taylor uploaded a short statement on her social after the news of her split up with her estranged husband went viral.

According to the multitalented music director, someone “leaked” the court documents after she had privately taken legal steps to end their relationship in January.

“I have not spoken on this private matter to any media outlets or blogs etc. So everyone claiming, “Teyana said”, didn’t get any statements directly from me. These statements were taken from private court documents that were leaked to the public,” she clarified.

Apparently, news of the divorce broke out after her ‘antagonized’ hubby used their full names when he was filling his response eight months after their separation.

Teyana expressed her displeasure at the current situation, saying, “It is very heartbreaking that someone would take time to make such a private matter public for the world to see.”

The “Gonna Love Me” singer ended by making a public petition to protect her daughters as their family goes through this difficult time.

“Please, if y’all love y’all play nieces Junie and Rue as y’all have shown, please allow me and my family some privacy to resolve this matter in peace. Love y’all.”

According to the court documents, Teyana Taylor accused Iman Shumpert of “being extremely emotionally and mentally abusive towards her” as his NBA career continued to wind down.

She also added that the retired Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard was “oppressing her and displaying extreme narcissistic behavior throughout the majority of their marriage.”
